  • Alternative Title:
    User's guide to the (R.A.C.E.0010) map program
  • Description:
    The (RACE0010) MAP program is used extensively at the Northwest and Alaska Fisheries Center for graphic presentation of data on maps. The maps are drawn on CalComp (and other) plotters that are connected to the Center's computer system and network. This document includes actual maps that illustrate the numerous options available to the user of the program: different sizes of maps, coastline coverage in each hemisphere, resolution of coastline, inclusion of details, coastline, islands, and lakes, rivers, national and state boundaries, depth contours borders and labels, decimal places for superimposed station data, trace values and zero values, track lines, variable character sizes, superimposed external lines, multiple pens, Mercator and polyconic projections, overplotting resolution of overplotting, and a shaded density map. Each section, devoted to a particular option, contains a reference map illustrating the default values. Subsequent maps in each section illustrate variations for that option. The parameters for generating each map are also shown. Appendices contain the MAP program documentation (current as of May, 1983), brief descriptions of programs that are frequently used in conjunction with MAP, and tables of CalComp and Tektronix plotter symbols that may be used to represent stations.
